February 2023 Note: I regularly update the stories in my website with needed changes or other corrections for errors I discover or that are pointed out to me by my readers. If you have read one of my website stories in the past, the first time you read one of my stories in 2023, you may want to press the "refresh" button on your browser to make sure you are seeing any changes that might have been made in that story. I have also updated the SASS Shooters Handbook link in several stories to reflect the January 30, 2023 update (Version 27.4) that provide guidance and rules for the sport from choosing an alias to selecting costumes. Finally, please let me know if you find non-working website links so that I can change or drop them, and I also appreciate hearing about any content or spelling errors you find in my stories. Thanks.
